Terms & Conditions


1. Registration

Participants should check prior to submission that they will obtain permission to travel and appropriate 

funding from their respective employers. They should settle far in advance visa applications.


Participants register by filling the ad hoc form available on our site for each conference, and by sending it 

(or submitting it electronically) to the TSCF conference management team. The receipt of these sendings/submissions shall be acknowledged. 

Registrations are individual even though registrants may belong to the same organization. 

Accommodation and flight details mentioned on the registration form are considered as accurate. TSCF declines any responsibility should registration forms be completed inaccurately.

Participants are expected to retrieve their email regularly, and to be accessible and reachable during the whole period of preparation for the conference.

2. Fees and Payments 

Registrations become effective upon receipt of a completed registration form and the corresponding payment, including registration fees and accommodation. Payment should be made preferably by bank transfer; bank charges must be paid by the registrant.

For each conference, the amount of the conference fee as well as the services covered are indicated on the appropriate page of our site, or are available upon request.

TSCF members pay a lower fee. 

All charges are non-refundable, except in two cases: when we cancel a planned event, and when we cancel an individual participation for disciplinary or compliance reasons. In the latter case, an administration cost of 10 to 50% is deducted from the refund. Should a participant be excluded for any reason during a conference, there is no right to refund. 

Refund claims are accepted within one year after the concerned event.

3. Program 

Speakers deliver presentations based on innovative research or experience that bears on (or is related to) the topics of the conference. Paper or reports of projects are submitted in the form of an abstract which must be presented in TSCF format. The Conference Program Committee needs at least 7 business days to examine the abstracts submitted. Paper presentations can be individual or be included in panels of speakers. 

TSCF reserves the right to modify the program, replace the speakers or change organizational details if necessary.

4. Language

The language used in our conferences is English.


5. Culture and Values


Participation is subject to acceptance of and compliance with our conference rules and etiquette.
